How about...

Apoc - Appocalypse, a 40k rules supplement that allows for mega games of 40k.

CoD - Cities of Death, a 40k rules supplement that contains rules for city fight games.

A lot of the abbreviations used are context sensitive, I've found.

For example if the post is about a Tau army list, FW probably means Fire Warrior(s). If it's about a release schedule, it probably means ForgeWorld.

Ususally either Multiple Small Units or Mass Small Units.

Think, one CSM squad of 20 marines, or 4 CSM squads of 5 marines. That principle en masse.

My mates and I generally refer to the Big rule book as BRB when talking about it via msn etc when we're fighting debating the various rules. Same again for the SRB (small rule book) you get from AoBR.
